“a great retreat”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

Me and 5 friends booked the Lake Cottage which sleeps 6 for my Hen do last weekend. We were welcomed by Sarah who was very friendly and showed us around the cottage and spa.

The cottage was lovely, clean and cosy, with everything you need for a weekend away. We even had a bench outside the front garden which was great for lunching in the sun! The spa was lovely and peaceful and we all had a relaxing time in the jacuzzi and steam rooms. We all said how great our treatments were which left us feeling refreshed and relaxed for the rest of the day. The sun was even out and we took our towels on the grass out the back and had a cheeky sunbathe!

The location is amazing. So peaceful and fresh. A few of us went for a walk across the little bridge opposite and up along the fields which had amazing views.

We took a 5 minutes stroll up to the village shop where we got icecreams. The shop is well equipped if you have forgotten anything, saving you the drive to barnstable. Teh pub was very inviting too!

All in all a great hen holiday away and highly recommended :-) Also, great for couples! I plan on returning with my husband-to-be very soon

Oh and not having phone signal was luxury - a true retreat!!

Myself and my wife have just returned from a weekend abreak at the Home Place Farmhouse Spa.

We were warmly welcomed by Sarah who showed us around and led us to our accomodation. It was listed as accomodation for 2, however, it had 2 bedrooms with a total of 1 double and 3 single beds.

The accomdation was very clean and well equipped with everything you could need for a weekend break.

The spa was wondeful, but the setting was a real treat. Just across the country lane was a stream, where to my amazement I spotted an otter!

The pub just up the hill was fantastic and definately a must for anyone staying in the area.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a two bedroom cottage at Home place. Everything about the weekend was amazing, really nice staff and perfect treatments. The spa facilities were just as good, very clean and had them to ourselves most of the weekend! Would most definitely return and well worth every penny!

My husband and I stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages at Home Place. The cottage was well equipped and the breakfast package was very good. The cottage smelled a little musty but they are old buildings. The food at the local pub was excellent and a great surprise! Definately worth a visit.
The location is quiet so perfect to get away from it all. For those who can't tear themselves away for civiliasation, beware, the phone singal is poor.
The spa was a welcome retreat after a day of exploring the area. Quite often we had the spa to ourselves.We both had treatments. A couples rasul, my husband had a massage and I had a facial, both very good and value for money.
Would stay again!

Good accommodation and friendly service in a beautiful location. We spent the weekend walking over Exmoor so it was great to be able to relax in the spa at the end of the day. The cottages were well equipped and comfortable and the owner was very helpful with info on walks etc.

Room Tip: We stayed in the one bedroomed cottage and it was lovely and cosy

I came across Holme Place when looking for somewhere a little different for a hen weekend for 15 of us & it certainly ticked all the boxes. We had the place exclusively which is hard to find, the spa was small but perfectly formed, swim spa jacuzzi that could fit 5 in the "bubble end" and 1 more in the "swim against the jet" end, 3 more in the steam room, 2 in having treatments and for those who were just too relaxed to move, some loungers in the spa area or a chick flick & glass of wine in one of the cottages!!

The treatment rooms were spacious and the therapists of good quality, so I would recommend having a bit of a pamper while your there.

It is centrally located so you are no more than 30 min from most of the local attractions, we did horse riding at Caffyns Farm & surfing @ Westward Ho!

The cottage accomodation has everything you need, TV, dining area, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds. We opted for the linen included option to arrive to freshly made beds and fluffy towels on arrival. The breakfast pack ticks the boxes as well, good quality bread, milk, tea, coffee & a selection of cereals.

Just a quick word of warning, there is almost no mobile phone signal, so if your someone who cannot cope without a phone glued to your ear this is not the place for you. For everyone else, peace and quiet in a beautiful tranquil spot.

Room Tip: Have the linen bundle, to arrive to pre made beds

I wanted to treat my wife to a pampering weekend away for her birthday and this was just the ticket. It was nice to be somewhere more personal than the usual. Great fun in the Rasul together, we must have had the spa to ourselves for a good couple of hours one afternoon.
